The IMF and World Bank are knocking on Latin America's door. A headline in Tuesday's Washington Post reads, " Latin America Appears to Warm to IMF." But that is not what Bolivia's Evo Morales--the country's first indigenous president--said last week when he spoke in front of the United Nations on Earth Day. Morales told reporters that the IMF had " blackmailed" his country and that privatization of basic services and natural resources was not an option.

GRITtv had a chance to sit down with Morales and discuss his equality agenda, socialism, and the Bolivian banking system.
